Wild Romantic are incredible and I highly recommend them for your wedding or any event you are having. Elle and the team are super professional, accommodating and easy to work with. I am so obsessed with my wedding photos, they are cool and modern (goodbye daggy wedding images and videos). Everyone said how my wedding images looked like photos from a wedding in vogue magazine. Super high end but also still a beautiful resemblance of myself and my husband and our love story. Thank you Wild Romantic, the memories you have captured so perfectly will always be a reminder of the best day of our life. xx

Searching for a wedding photographer was tough, I spent nights scouring through websites and instagram accounts for someone who is professional, reasonably priced and takes gorgeous, editorial looking photographs. I’m so glad I found Elle, she exceeded all expectations. I had two weddings, one cultural and the other western and she was able to capture both weddings beautifully, going above and beyond to get the perfect pictures. Elle made sure I got all the shots I wanted and even got shots I didn’t know I wanted. She is creative, passionate and dedicated. I have recommended her to all my friends.

The Wild Romantic photography and videography team were so great before, during and after our wedding, and I’m forever thankful to my friend for recommending them. Even though I had a small, last minute wedding, Elle happily took my call, calmed me down, and helped me plan everything. She was super responsive and organised leading up to the day. The team on the day were laid back and lovely, and let us just go with the flow just as we wanted. They also somehow miraculously made us look like movie stars against all odds! I’m especially happy that we ended up going with the video package, because this is definitely something we will treasure forever.

Elle is an absolute wonder to work with, powering through and making sure our wedding vision was 100% (even during maternity leave). I had mixed feelings about the photographer we had originally chosen and switch to Wild Romantic on a gut feeling - best decision I ever made. I'm literally the most photo awkward person and our wedding photos are absolutely GORGEOUS, the colour palette, the editing, the candids, everything was even better than we imagined. Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is the absolute most important thing, Elle and her team were out of this world. At end of the night with the sun setting across the Macedon ranges, high off the craziness of it all, Rohit captured the most beautiful moments of our wedding - his excitement was contagious. Thank you Wild Romantic (Elle) we are seriously in love.

Elle and her team are wonderful! We discovered Elle through friends who had hired her for their wedding, and after seeing their stunning photos, we knew she was the perfect choice for us. Elle was always prompt and attentive in her communication, making us feel at ease throughout the planning process.On our wedding day, the assigned photographer RJ, captured exactly what we had asked for: less posed shots and more real-time images. The photos turned out breathtaking, with a cinematic and yet realistic look that we absolutely adored. Elle truly understood our photography preferences and brought them to life beautifully.Not only did Elle excel as a photographer, but she also recommended an incredible makeup artist who was exactly what I was looking for and I can't thank her enough for that!Throughout the day, the RJ made us feel comfortable and allowed us to fully enjoy our celebration while capturing every special moment. The candid shots were seamless, and the final photographs were of outstanding quality, with impeccable composition and clarity.Elle and her team went above and beyond by delivering the images even sooner than expected. Their professionalism and thoughtful presentation of the final photos added to the overall wonderful experience.Thank you, Elle and RJ, for immortalising our wedding day so beautifully and for recommending the amazing makeup artist.

Elle was so helpful and had a consultation just before the wedding to check the structure of our day, and checked the style of photos and the key people we wanted in our photographs.
